You mean like how Republicans use their veteran relatives to pander? Don't pretend as if this kind of behavior is just used by one side, you're making it worse.
Not sure where you're going with that. Republicans aren't leaning on veteran relatives like the democrats lean on racism and sexism, not even close.
If anything, politicians on both sides use their family or own military backgrounds for support. Some even exaggerate their service like Blumenthal (democrat) to win votes.
Agreed. I mean I see what he is talking about if someone is touting a distant relative they never knew, and say that their service makes them want to fix the VA, but when elected they don't do jack shit. But, if they are talking about a direct relative that helped shape their view on things, I have no problem with that.
I am not defending it. I thought my post was as clear of an attack against the USA's way of doing politics as it can come.
The most entertaining thing about American politics is that they have effectively a two-party-system and its supporters keep accusing the other side of hypocrisy and double standards, seemingly oblivious to how omnipresent hypocrisy and double standards are among both parties.
Fucking nailed it. I mean honestly what can any Republican/conservative really say about any Democrat or liberal... look at the complete ass clown we have in office lol. It’s a never ending cycle of bias and nonsense where each side is too busy mud slinging and dirt digging and sabotaging the other side to ever make any actual progress.
Im not a fan of Warren but for all we know her parents told her she had NA ancestry and she took their word for it. Happens all the time.
It wouldn't be a problem if this was just a family story that she later found out was wrong. She didn't keep it just a story when she started labeling herself as a minority and was hired as Harvard's first woman of color.
Friend posted this in facebook. Did she really claim her mom was part cherokee? Or was this interview taken out of context? I don’t really trust these sites ppl post in facebook...
And I’m hearing that she may not have cherokee blood at all. More like latin american blood. A teeny tiny bit of it.
Part Cherokee and Delaware. Funny, cause her mom looks as lilly white as she does, which is why I don't buy her story about her dad's family rejecting her. Unless she wants to admit that they are racist Jim Crow Democrats who were using the One Drop Rule.
And yes, her DNA was compared to DNA samples from Latin America, not American Cherokees.
Goodness, why does this matter? Is her ancestry supposed to make her special or something?
According to her it does.
So Trump was wrong on Obama and now he's proven wrong on Warren.
What strange logic. Warren proved she wasn't a Native American, so Trump was wrong for saying she lied about being a Native American.
I think this was just for Trump's benefit
Yea, it'll definitely benefit him if she somehow gets the nomination. I think Biden will beat her easily, though.
